As a dog owner, I’ve had a specific decor-related problem that I’ve been trying to solve for some time now. Namely, how do I disguise, hide or cover up my dog’s ugly crate? Getting rid of it seems like an obvious fix, but my dog was crate trained by a previous owner, and I think he likes having a little den of his own for sleeping (or chewing toys). Enter these crate covers by Bowhaus NYC.

dog crate covers

They come in a number of colors, patterns and styles and turn a sad wire mess into something that resembles a tiny tent, or perhaps a beach/pool cabana. Plus, matching bed inserts! I also love the way the crate cover flaps can be rolled up and down for easy access or sleepytime. My dog may not be as rich as Leona Helmsley’s Trouble once was, but at least he can live like a millionaire. (And I can get my bedroom back in order.)

    Not my design style – but definitely much cuter then a lot of the stuff out there. I personally was thrilled when Modkat came out with their stylish top entry litter box! My little man loves it and it looks way cuter then the other options available!

    This is a neat idea for pet owners with crates. My sister is always trying to find a place to hid her crate when guests come over, this makes it a little easier to look at. I wish it came in more sutle prints. These prints are a little busy for me, but good idea!

    I don't understand where the wires are on the front side of the crate. How do you keep the dog in?

        Obviously you have never owned a lab! Highly destructive when left alone until they are 2 yrs old. Crate training is a must.

      She means where is the DOOR! They kind of come on the crate, hence…crate training your dog. What's the point of having the crate if you don't close them in when you leave, etc.

    When I say I am going out my little dog goes to her crate . She likes it and it keeps her safe from getting into things when I am out. I never leave her more than a few hours and when I am home she is with me on the sofa but goes to her "bed" on her own when I am busy in the house.
    She sleeps on my bed and is loved and well taken care of.
    It's all a matter of good sense and providing a den to keep your dog secure and safe isn't a bad thing.
